Follow in the footsteps of a historic romance by marrying at Davenport House. Here, in the early 17th century, love conquered all for William Davenport and Jane Bromley, his true love and the heiress of Hallon. The family were to reside at Davenport House for generations to come. It seems only right that this most enchanting venue should now take on such a romantic role, making memories for you and your family.
With your wedding ceremony as the focus of this joyful day, you might choose to exchange vows in The Great Hall, at the very heart of the house. The Stables cottage offers itself as an elegant bridal preparation area, just a few steps from the front of Davenport House. On entering the house through spectacular double doors, the Great Hall brims with ancestral character and historic features. Portraits of the Davenport family hang on the panelled walls and up the magnificent staircase while contemporary hues of lead grey add a serenity and calmness to this most elegant ancestral hall. Surrounded by history and embraced by the presence of your own family and friends, this is perhaps the perfect space in which to marry.
Following your ceremony, double doors lead through to the majestic Saloon with its marquetry floor. It is here that you might greet your guests, enjoying drinks and canapés along with breathtaking views over the lawn and countryside beyond. Stone steps lead down from The Saloon to the terrace, lawns and lily pond, a sublime, tranquil spot in which to circulate with friends and family on warmer days. Photo opportunities are in abundance both inside and out, from the secluded secret garden to the magnificent staircase and fireplaces.
